This book is wrapped and under my Xmas tree right now. The wife won't let me get to it for a few more days and then I'll be able to post a review.

Hi,

I have the book and I strongly recommend it to anyone.
It contains very good material that you will use.

It contains some items that are also sold separately, like "Party of Six" (25$) and "Mad Card Disease" (7.50$), so for 19$ more you get a full Hardcover book, with Dustjacket, 350 pages, over 500 photographs! To me it's a bargain.

The instructions are very well written, and the pictures are crytal clear.

Besides, with David's style of wrting, the book is very entertaining to read (as opposed to many "dry" magic books) with all the anecdotes, road stories, and 12 hilarious, thought-provoking essays. And you get contributions from Jay Sankey, Simon Lovell, Richard Sanders, Patrik Kuffs, Michel Huot, Joshua Jay, Barry Julien and Max Maven!

and if you buy it from his website http://www.davidacer.com he will gladly sign/dedicate the book for you!

My 2 cents.
